    Would it matter if I were African and traveled here? Will I face racism like I do in the US?

      I'm not black, but I don't think you'll experience any negative discrimination. In fact, you're more likely to be positively discriminated against.

        When he acts unpleasantly and rudely in public, people look annoyed.
        Terrible, terrible racism.

      If you're African you'll feel right at home in Paris.

      It's like being in Lagos or Dakar.

    Another anon here - looking for recommendations for a night out.
    Surely I can do better than the tourist trap Latin Quarter?

      Moulin Rouge is actually pretty cool. And the whole Pigalle district is interesting

    Napoleon's tomb is kinda neat but put it as lower priority between the 4.
    Go to the Louvre first thing in the day. I got there at 8 (it opens at 9) because I arrived in the city early and was among the first in line. It makes getting to the Mona Lisa and the other major things pretty easily.
    A metro day pass is worth it for ease of access. There's about 15 lines or something covering everything.
    Tour Montparnasse is actually the highest point in the city so you should be able to get a good view of the city including Eiffel on a clear day (I got a foggy day, fml)
    If you like vidya, Boulevard Voltaire is good for shopping (multiple retro game stores) and La Tête Dans Les Nuages is a decent arcade.
    Les Galeries Lafayette is decent for a look but it's an expensive place to shop.

      I just did my first trip to Paris and other areas in France a few weeks ago. A lot of those can easily be completed in one day. If you're there for 12 you're going to need a lot of other things to occupy your time.

      I was only there 4 days at the start of my trip and 1 day at the end and saw all of those. Some things I learned:
      -Do monmarte early in the day, I did it late in the day and it was crowded AF, went back the next day early in the morning and there was no one. In general for all the things that are super busy go early if you want to avoid crowds (Louvre/Tower/etc).
      -Spread the museum days out, personal opinion but I start getting serious museum fatigue and having some other activities between is nice.
      -Be ware of stuff being closed on mondays, Pomidou/Sainte Chapelle were two of the only things open on Monday when I went
      -Do Versailles on Tuesday when the fountains are on, go as early as possible, I got the earliest time slot and doing the whole gardens took till 5pm
      -Have dinner reservations if you want to eat out at semi-popular spots and not the tourist trap ones. When I was at restaurants id see lots of people get turned away because they didn't have reservations and the place was fully booked.
      -Metro is the best way to get around

        Thanks. I have spread out the museum visits and bought tickets in advance to all the places I could. Unfortunately some of the places already had sold out the early timeslots. Might throw in a TGV trip to some countryside location in there if it starts to look thin.

        The southernmost place I have ever been to is Stockholm so I think just hanging around in Paris is exotic to me and my brother. Looking forward to seeing all the burning cars and riots.

      Might as well go to other cities with that much time. Places like Brussels (on the Thalys), Nantes, Rennes. Even see about getting to Mont-Saint-Michel. Even Lyon on the TGV would be feasible distance-wise.

    Does anybody know how the reconstruction of Notre Dame is progressing?

    And when I went, years ago, I made a trip out to La Defense, just to see the contrast between the skyscrapers and the old buildings back in the core districts.

      regardless if its still under construction you should go, I want to see it because right now is one of the only times where you can witness the aftermath of such a historic event

    I'm thinking about going next week to Paris to see a friend, as I don't have anything more interesting to do. I think I'll go into a hostel and go with the flow.
